First TV Spots for Guillermo del Toro’s PACIFIC RIM and M. Night Shyamalan’s AFTER EARTH

Posted April 16, 2013 by Rick in Movie News


Pacific Rim is about legions of monstrous creatures known as Kaiju that rose from the sea.  A war is the only answer in order to destroy Kaiju’s and along with this war, many people lost their lives.  To destroy the Kaiju, massive robots called Jaegers were build and controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge.  The Jaegers are no match for the giant Kaiju because on the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to fight for their lives.  A former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) have to work together to save what’s left of mankind.

Warner Bros. has released the first international TV spot for Guillermo del Toro‘s upcoming movie, Pacific Rim.  This story is about monsters known as Kaiju who try to destroy the world.  Robots are made especially to destroy Kaiju but they’re not match for these vile creature.  This TV spot does a great job of selling the epic nature of the story.  The film opens in 2D and 3D on July 12th.

Night Shyamalan’s sci-fi film After Earth.  This film stars Will Smith and his very own, Jaden Smith.  In the film they also act as father and son who crash land on an after-apocalyptic Earth and must fight to survive when the father is seriously injured.  The film opens on June 7th.
